Over the past year, the City of Chula Vista has been working in partnership with local service providers, businesses and residents to strengthen the community in the southwestern area of the city. The effort, known as Southwest United in Action, provided residents with a forum to share their ideas about improving local neighborhoods.
The leadership conference, an event that caps the yearlong Southwest United in Action initiative, will include six evening sessions in May and June that run from 5:30-8:30 p.m. Each of the six sessions will address an area of interest to the Southwest community and will provide important information on a variety of subjects such as planning, public safety, public health, and communications. Discussion among participants will provide opportunities to hone public speaking and networking skills.
Sessions are scheduled on the following Mondays and Wednesdays at a Southwest location that will be announced soon.
- Monday, May 4
- Monday, May 11
- Wednesday, May 20
- Wednesday, May 27
- Monday, June 1
- Monday, June 8
A light dinner will be served at each session. For more information, contact Carla Blackmar, Redevelopment Project Coordinator at (619) 476-5355 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
